MPs' pay and pensions home
Parliament has now also put an end to the situation whereby MPs decide their own pay and pension arrangements – giving IPSA the powers to decide. For the first time an independent body will settle these issues and, in doing so, we are giving the public a say.
We have published a report, Reviewing MPs’ Pay and Pensions which analyses the responses to our recent consultation (which ran from 15 October to 7 December 2012) and includes a survey of MPs carried out for us by YouGov. The report identifies the key areas for IPSA to focus on in the coming months as it reviews MPs’ remuneration. IPSA will continue its analysis of the issue before publishing proposals in the spring, upon which it will consult. IPSA plans to publish details of the new remuneration package for MPs in autumn this year, to take effect after the next general election scheduled for 2015.
We invite you to keep up to date by following us on Twitter and checking back to this website in the spring. Although our initial consultation has now closed, for you reference you you can still read copies of the full consultation document and a shorter summary paper here and on the “Consultation” page of this website. Please note that paragraph 61 of the consultation document was amended on 1 November 2012 to reflect the ascending list of priorities identified by the Hansard Society.
